If I Have Ever Needed You

Tonight as I reflect on my life and walk with Christ I am challenged to live my life with purpose. At some time in the past few years I  began stumbling through life following the routines that I allowed to creep into my daily existence. It is not like I have lived a life full of intentional sin, I have simply become busy and have committed many sins of ommision. I have neglected to look for God in the midst of my life. I have neglected my prayer life and have failed to spend time in God’s Word.

As I write this blog I am listening to Casting Crowns and each song that I hear brings a refreshing new perspective into my heart. It has been raining for so long and I have failed to praise Him often enough while I wait on Him to calm the storm in my heart. He called me out and I turned away and today I realized how much I need Him now. I have seen that nobody falls in a day but it instead slowly let their walk with Christ fade. Casting Crowns says it perfectly in their song Slow Fade.

Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you’re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see ~Casting Crowns~

This morning’s church service was one I will never forget. I was reminded of what true worship looks like, what being sold out to Christ feels like, and the powerful way God can use us when we allow Him to fill us to the point that we are overflowing. God moved among His church and brought reconciliation, encouragement, and healing. It is my prayer that I will never be the same again, that I will continue to allow God to fill me with His love until He begins to splash out on those around me.
